Adult Services

Issues such as unresolved grief, depression, anxiety and anger are often overwhelming and can lead to a psychiatric crisis. In addition, the person may be struggling with addictive behaviors including alcohol and drug abuse. Our focus is to assist the patient in restoring empowerment, hope, meaning and purpose.

Outpatient Programs

Recognizing a patient’s need for various levels of care, LLUBMC offers both Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospital Programs (PHP). Both are highly structured therapeutic day treatment programs providing psychiatric and dual diagnosis treatment, while allowing the patients to return home in the evening.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) was created for those individuals only needing treatment for four hours a day,a few days a week.

The Partial Hospital Program (PHP)is a highly structured therapeutic day treatment program lasting six hours per day, five days a week. This program serves as a “step down” from inpatient hospitalization or as a means to prevent hospitalization.
